Kenneth MacKenzie, development director, Cinnamon Care Collection
It’s been just 6 months since the launch of Carterwood Analytics, and we’re delighted to have had amazing feedback from our client base. Our team has been working hard to understand from our care home operator, developer and investor clients, the features they would most like to see developed that would add the most value to their experience. After listening to our clients, the development team have been busy implementing new features and data sets to allow access to millions more markets. Details of our latest major feature launch are below.
We have extended the geographical coverage of the platform to include all current and historic postcodes in Scotland. Our care home supply, planning and staffing data is all included so clients developing and acquiring in Scotland can now use Carterwood Analytics to analyse these care home markets.
Our new data and thematic mapping helps to estimate staffing market size. The number of registered nurses and the key demographic target profile for care assistants is calculated automatically for any catchment area. For registered nurses, we also include a breakdown of nationality between domestic, EU and other overseas staff.
Following our recent addition of CQC rating data to enable users to better understand the quality of care provided by competitors, our clients can now monitor changes in CQC status for care homes across any of their Tracked markets.
Our clients have consistently told us that more wealth metrics would be useful to assess development sites. We have now included additional census data to indicate the socio-economic classification (AB, C1, C2 and DE grades) of the population for every catchment in England and Wales – and data for Scotland will be coming soon.
We analyse dozens of new opportunities each week and Carterwood Analytics helps ensure we spend our time on the right ones.
